Establish a holding file for the control copy of each CMS-1957 which is initiated.
This file may be used if a request for additional development is received. It will
preclude redevelopment if the case is not corrected.
Annotate a followup date in the upper right hand corner of the control copy of the
CMS-1957 based on the following timeframes:
Original CMS-1957 sent to CMS Premium Module - 90 days.
Original CMS-1957 sent to parallel DO - 45 days
Original CMS-1957 sent to local welfare office or to State Agency - 45 days.
If the servicing DO/BO receives a request for additional development, it should furnish
the information and diary the case an additional 45 days.
The servicing DO/BO should receive a response to each CMS-1957 it sends to the local
welfare office, the parallel DO, or the State Agency. If a response is not received
by the expiration of the diary date, request status.
If the original copy of the CMS-1957 or other satisfactory documentation is received
by the servicing DO/BO specifying that no action is necessary or that no action can
be taken, or that the corrective action has been taken (and it is verified by the
servicing DO/BO) the material in the holding file may be destroyed.
Refer to HI 00815.094 for instructions concerning follow-up action on CMS-1957s sent to the Premium Module
in CMS Central Office.
